Roasted Chick Peas

Posted on by Jennie

You guys, we had a wonderful weekend with King Arthur Flour and a bunch of other new blogger friends (hi friends!) and I am excited to share more with you about it, but in the meantime, I wanted to share a delicious snack with you that everyone should make now. Ready?

Here’s a secret: roasted chick peas are delicious and easy and a great snack.

Now that you know, you should go forth and make yourself some delicious roasted chickpeas and you should eat them all up.

Here’s what you do: take a can of chickpeas, rinse ’em off, dry ’em off. Drizzle about a tablespoon or two of olive oil onto the peas, then add pretty much whatever spices you want – I added cayenne pepper, cinnamon, and salt. You can add about a half a teaspoon of each spice and about a quarter teaspoon of salt.

Roast them in the oven at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes, but you should check them AT LEAST every 10 minutes. Keep ’em in until their nice and crispy.

    I love roasted chickpeas but haven’t had them in a while so thanks for making me think about them again! I have a ridiculous amount of spices in my cabinet so I can’t wait to try mixing up something new for these. Great snack idea!

    The recipe sounded really delicious, but alas, after 40 min., the chickpeas were burned to a crisp. I had to throw them away :'((( Could it be that 400 degrees is too hot? Or maybe I added too many spices?

      Hi Marie! I am so sorry that happened to you! I would recommend checking them every 10 minutes, or alternatively you can try 375…but definitely check on them to avoid them burning, as every oven is different. I will make a note of this in the recipe! Good luck.
